USS Greeneville Returns from the Western Pacific

first_img View post tag: Returns View post tag: Naval Authorities The Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS Greeneville (SSN 772) returned to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Aug. 25, following a deployment to the Western Pacific. The submarine’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Martin Muckian said the crew was outstanding during deployment.“They performed superbly in every area, from the tactical watchstanders, to the nuclear propulsion plants operators, to the cooks. Every Sailor did his job and did it well, and that enabled Greeneville to do some great things for 7th Fleet on this deployment,” said Muckian.The 150-man crew of Greeneville was forward deployed for more than six months, completing a variety of operations and missions vital to national security.In addition to gaining the experience of operating in the Western Pacific, the deployment afforded Sailors the opportunity to work on critical qualifications.Over the course of the deployment, 15 enlisted Sailors and two officers became submarine qualified and are now able to wear their respective submarine warfare insignia, or “dolphins.”“The crew is feeling sky high after this deployment,” said Muckian. “They were asked to do some difficult things and they know they delivered. It’s a great feeling for them. When you combine that feeling of accomplishment with the joy of seeing your family and friends again, it makes homecoming a great day.”While on deployment, Greeneville’s crew helped strengthen community ties in Guam, as well as with foreign allies in South Korea and Singapore.USS Greeneville is the 61st Los Angeles-class submarine and the 22nd Improved Los Angeles-class attack submarine.USS Greeneville was commissioned a U.S. naval warship at Norfolk Naval Base Feb. 16, 1996. Greeneville changed homeport to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in March 1997.[mappress]Press Release, August 26, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: USS Greeneville August 26, 2014 View post tag: Western Pacificcenter_img View post tag: americas USS Greeneville Returns from the Western Pacific View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Greeneville Returns from the Western Pacific Share this articlelast_img read more

Barrett. The Buckeyes are 31.5-point favorites for the game at Ohio Stadium.No. 3 TCU (3-0) at Texas Tech (3-0) – 4:45 p.m.The Horned Frogs looks to put off-the-field issues behind them for Saturday’s road game against Texas Tech.
